Avatar m tn HIV can be transmitted due to sharing needles, this is because the blood interact. Unfortunately, there is no cure for HIV (note that HIV isn't the same as AIDS) but treatment for this virus is really advanced. There are medications that permit people live a completely normal life with HIV without developing AIDS. I hope everything is ok, post your results. Personally, I think you didn't involve in high risk. This virus is very fragile and die easily at normal temperature.

Avatar m tn I am trying to get something in writing to show that this decision does not follow within the accepted guidelines for treatment of his form of Hepititis. I believe the Dr. in Az. may have made this decision not realizing he did not have a 12 week blood sample. My son is 43 years old and in otherwise good health. He has not had any symptoms of Hep C nor has he had any side effects from the treatments.

Avatar n tn However (CATIE, Canadian Aids Treatment Information Exchange) the governing body for HIV research in Canada says a duo test is conclusive at 28 days or anytime after. I personally spoke with the medical director and she stated the window period is 4 weeks for the Duo test. That information is also stated by HIV experts such as Dr. Handsfield and Dr. Hook (World reknowned HIV experts) based on numerous seroconversion panel studies. The 90 day window period refers strictly to Antibody only tests.

Avatar m tn You all strictly follow the testing at 3 months only conclusive for unprotected sex as per CDC guidelines. But you wont accept as CDC says "Unprotected oral sex can also be a risk for HIV transmission, but it is a much lower risk than anal or vaginal sex." Even though low risk, testing is essential or not?
Avatar m tn As of November 2009, 23,731 HIV/AIDS cases have been reported in the country (National HIV/AIDS Program of the Ministry of Health). The Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) estimates that in 2007, 35,000 Salvadorans were living with HIV (UNAIDS 2008 Report on the Global AIDS Epidemic). Incidence appears to have declined since 2004, but there is a fear that HIV/AIDS cases are underreported due to lack of an effective monitoring system.
Avatar m tn This is a member to member forum with very knowledable people giving answers. Information is based on current HIV guidelines. Oral is not considered a risk by exerts in HIV. That's the bottom line and the stance the forum supports. If you feel otherwise, please test. But there is nothing more we can offer you here.
Avatar n tn I have been given Nystatin anti fungal mouth wash and I have finished about half of it with no improvement on the tongue. I was retested for hiv at 7 weeks 5 days and it came back negative. Having read posts on this board I know that testing at 7 weeks is very accurate. the only thing that makes me doubt the result is my continued congestion, my abnormally white and dry tongue, and my unchanging enlarged pelvic lymph nodes. the white film does not come off with abrasion.

Avatar f tn The guidelines we go by at MedHelp are the recommendations of some of the worlds most well known and respected HIV/AIDS experts. We recommend the 4th generation DUO test 28 days post exposure and a confirmatory test at 12 weeks for a 100% conclusive result. Your doctor goes by different guidelines. Perhaps you should ask him why he thinks so many experts are wrong.
